  • Such a great history behind the Pontiac car! 3 floors of sights to see in relation to this car. We've had 6 Pontiacs in our lifetime and this even made us sadder to see it gone.  more »

  • Drove about 4 hours to get to the museum. There is not a ton to see (about 20 vehicles). However, what is there is a good representation. Plus admission is free and the place is very nice. Being a Pontiac lover and restorer having a source for research is great as well. If you are not a a "Pontiac Person" and just want to see cars more than a 2 hour drive might be disappointing. There are many other sights however in this small quaint downtown area.
  • Amazing culture and history. Free entrance (donations accepted). And if you get a group of people they will take you on a tour of all the storage buildings in the surrounding area housing an amazing collection
  • We arrived just before they closed on a cold winter night. The young lady in charge stayed there late to let me and my 2 kids look at everything. It was so nice of her. It made our night! Cool place too, with a big Pontiac library!
  • Very very cool place to visit. Very well put together and what a collection.. And it's free !!!!
  • Awesome small-town car museum! We enjoyed our visit very much
